BS Konstata – David Waschbüsch

BS Konstata - David Waschbüsch

The now released »BS Kon­stata« is really a niche font. Cre­ated for use as sten­cil for sin­age it fea­tures a set of only 10 dif­fer­ent ele­ments out of which you can com­pose the com­plete typeface. There­fore it bor­ders between being some­what grungy, mod­u­lar and classic.

BS Kon­stata is sup­posed to be stenciled with closed coun­ters – which is pos­sible due to the mod­u­lar stys­tem. In fact there are no bridges in it at all. It con­sists of a com­plete set of uni­case let­ters – numer­als are ment to be done als roman num­bers, ger­man umlaute are includes as ue (ä), oe (ö), ae(ä) and ss (ß). Any medium will do the job but I sug­gest using fast dry­ing paint like Placka, Edding  orMontana 94  spray-paint to speed up the pro­cess of com­pos­ing all elements.

On the key­board you will find all 10 ele­ments on the pos­i­tion of numer­als (0-9); a set of fully com­posed char­ac­ters on the pos­i­tion of lower­case let­ters (a-z incl. ü, ö, ä, ß); and every let­ters com­posed into the low­est pos­sible num­ber of parts (max­imal two, often only one) at the pos­i­tion of cap­ital letters.

SkyhookMono by David Waschbüsch

SkyhookMono by David Waschbüsch
Sky­hook­Mono is a care­fully hand­crafted mono­spaced type­face fam­ily. It is mod­ern, sturdy and reduced to the max yet refined and classy. But we really love the fact that Sky­hook Mono is very read­able even in smaller sizes. It is designed and opti­mized to be printed so you shouldnt be sur­prised when the results are even bet­ter than the screen appearance!

It is avail­able in 10 dif­fer­ent cuts ensur­ing it can be set con­trast­ingly. Each cut comes with more than 600 glyphs mean­ing you are cov­er­ing an incred­i­ble amount of lan­guages. We stopped count­ing at 150 lan­guages and roughly one bil­lion poten­tial read­ers world­wide. This includes small and exotic ones like Cre­ole or Gali­cian. Sky­hook­Mono is even avail­able in the Greek alpha­bet.
